So, you just got engaged and you are not that into fashion. Or, you are completely into the dress, but don’t know what else you have to do. Well, here is a list of the items that you have to think about for your wedding day. Hopefully, this list will help you be prepared so you won’t have to scramble around at the last minute and buy something you don’t really want.
Wedding dress: First, you need to look for a wedding dress. This is a statement about you, the wedding, your own style. This is what everyone will see you in so make sure you try on a lot of different styles. There are long and short styles, A-line and princess cuts, off the shoulder, long sleeve, everything you can think of. So, be patient, look through the wedding magazines, and start trying them on. Also, don’t bring too many people with you when you make your decision. Everyone will have an opinion, but the most important thing is that you like the dress.
Wedding shoes: Do you want ivory wedding shoes or silver wedding shoes? What color is your dress? How high are your heels? The wedding shoes are the second most important thing to think about for the wedding day outfit, right after your wedding dress. So, think through the color, the style, the heel height and then go shopping. Also, make sure you bring them on the day of your fitting so you can get your dress altered to the right height.
Wedding hair accessories: This is another component of your outfit. You will need something to put in your hair. Or, you can opt for nothing. It really depends on what look you are going for. Some women buy a tiara so they can look like a princess. Some go for a headband so it is not too flashy. Others will buy clips and combs or put flowers in their hair. Whatever you choose, make sure you try it on with your hair stylist before the big day.
Wedding undergarments: What you wear underneath will affect how the dress falls and how you feel. If you have a dress with a thick material, this is not as important since it will hide granny pants as well as thongs. If you have a thin dress, make sure that you wear undergarments that do not have lines. Finally, think about whether or not you want to add Spanx to your outfit to make you look skinnier on that day.
Wedding jewelry: This is the final thing to buy. Wedding earrings, necklace and bracelet. Some of you may only buy or find one of these items. Sometimes, you can find the items in your own closet or your mother’s closet. Whatever you find, make sure you have it before the big day.
